Warehouse & Co came about in 1995 as the final members of the Osaka 5, the collective responsible for driving the vintage and selvedge denim boom of the 1990s. Founded by former Evisu and Full Count employees, the twin brothers Kenji and Kenichi Shiotani, Warehouse is known for their meticulous detail and considered construction.
These sweatshirts pack a lot of punch. The fabric is a medium weight loopwheel knit produced in Wakayama, Japan. There are only a few hundred loopwheel knitting machines left in the world. The gravity fed nature of these machines, slow rotational speed, and number of yarns coming in (only 2 to 6 yarns, rather than dozens) produce the softest, lowest tension knit possible. The inside is lightly brushed, giving a soft and slightly dry feel that is perfect for wearing all year long.
The front features a mathematical reprinting of Maxwell's Equations, which wikipedia tells me have something to do with electromagnetism. I couldn't tell you how true that is, nor could I say how to employ these mystical equations, but I can say that others who see you wearing this sweatshirt will think you're smart and learned about such things.
